TD Mortgage payment/withdrawal question

We are looking to pay off our mortgage.

For arguments sake, lets say we have $10,000 left. We make a weekly payment of $250 which is taken out of our account on Tuesdays. It shows that the amount was taken out right away from our account but it does not reflect on our mortgage until Saturday.

When I went to pay off the $9750 on Saturday that was left, I was told I still had one more weekly payment of $250 after that. According to the bank our mortgage payment is deducted before the payment is withdrawn from our account. Which means when I went to see them on the Saturday and our mortgage was at $9750, our payment was not taken out from the Tuesday.

Does anyone know if this means they always deduct the mortgage amount before the money is even taken ? Does that make sense ?

When paying off any loan in full, you should call and request the payout amount as of a certain date. There is a different process to pay out a loan than simply paying the outstanding balance. Call TD and tell them of your plans and they will take care of it for you.

Or simply visit branch and do it. Preferably where the account is. Also note there are some lump-sum payment allowed up to 15% or so. Without penalty. Just forgot 15% of original or what. it was long time ago.
Tried new coffee and doughnut. Found same old stale thing. expected bill of six bucks but it was 600 million. Big mistake so the guy said don't worry it is on the house. going back to McD.
